Jason is eager to lead and build on the library’s existing achievements. He was drawn to the library's beautiful building and its friendly, positive and supportive environment as evidenced by the dedicated staff and the Library Board of Trustees. With Jason's leadership and expertise, the library is poised to continue its legacy of excellence and commitment to the Warrenville community.

Jason welcomes opportunities to share his library knowledge and to answer questions. You can contact him directly at or 630/393-1171 x118.

Meet Ian, our new HR Manager

Ian is our new Human Resources Manager. He comes to us from a career in the retail and marketing world, with the last seven years in HR. He enjoys hiking and running in the local forest preserves, reading, listening to music, watching British TV especially comedies and spending time with his wife who happens to be a librarian by profession. 

He became interested in working in the HR department for a library, college or museum because of all they offer the community, their educational value and so much more.  Warrenville Public Library is providing him that opportunity to serve a local community.

Currently, Ian is reading Bono’s Surrender which is an autobiography by the U2’s lead singer revolving around 40 U2 songs. Next on his reading list is Alex Honnold’s Alone on the Wall. If you have seen the great documentary Free Solo, this is the book partly about the climb. Both the book and DVD (Ian recommended!) are available through the library catalog. To get Yosemite is on Ian’s bucket list to hike (but not climb).
